Jim Carrey talks "In Living Color" and dreaming big for Mr. Popper's Penguins.

The summer movie season's first live-action family comedy event stars Jim Carrey, whose chilly relationship with his family heats up after he inherits six adorable, lovable and mischievous penguins.

JIM CARREY (Mr. Popper) recently starred in the dark comedy "I Love You Phillip Morris," for which he received critical acclaim. In the film, Carrey stars as a family man whose exploits in white-collar crime land him in a Texas prison, where he falls in love with his cell mate (Ewan McGregor).
Carrey was seen during the 2009 holiday season as Ebenezer Scrooge in Robert Zemeckis' "A Christmas Carol," an adaptation of the Charles Dickens tale for Walt Disney Pictures, which was shot with "performance capture/Disney digital 3-D" animation.
In 1990, Carrey joined the cast of FBC's ensemble comedy hit "In Living Color." In November of the following year, his first Showtime Special, entitled "Jim Carrey's Unnatural Act," premiered to rave reviews. He followed the special's success with a starring role as an alcoholic trying to cope with life in Fox's Emmy® nominated movie of the week "Doing Time on Maple Drive."
In 1994, after several successful seasons on "In Living Color," Carrey again branched out into feature films by accepting the lead role in the Warner Bros. comedy "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective." Carrey's no-holds-barred portrayal of Ace Ventura made him an instant sensation and the film was a hit. Carrey followed that success in the summer of 1994 by starring in the title role of the action-fantasy "The Mask," which went on to gross over $100 million domestically, winning spectacular reviews for Carrey. That same year he starred opposite Jeff Daniels in the Farrelly brothers' film "Dumb and Dumber." Carrey starred as the Riddler/Edward Nygma in the 1995 blockbuster sequel "Batman Forever." The following year he went on to star in "Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls," continuing the misadventures of the world's favorite pet detective, and then starred in Columbia Pictures' "The Cable Guy," and Universal Pictures' hit "Liar, Liar," which opened to record breaking numbers in 1997, earning over $100 million in box office. Carrey's triumphant triple play earned him the honor of NATO/ShoWest Comedy Star of the Year.
Carrey recently established The Better U Foundation (www.betterufoundation.org), with the goal of promoting transformational and sustainable ideas that can improve the lives of people around the world.
